intermittent fasting versus ketogenic
diet are they the same can you do one
without the other
stay tuned and I’ll clarify for you hey
I’m Dr. Sten Ekberg with Wellness For
Life and by subscribing to our channel
you’ll learn everything that you need to
know to master true health what is
intermittent fasting what is ketogenic
diet what is that all about well
ketogenesis
is when you don’t eat carbs for a while
your body learns to develop more
reliance on fat it gets better at
burning the fats intermittent fasting
what is that
well fasting simply means that you don’t
eat for a while so basically every night
you’re fasting for however long you
sleep and the longer that you fast
meaning you don’t eat something that can
contribute to blood sugar the better
your body gets at developing a reliance
on fat for energy so you start accessing
the body’s fat stores for energy and
part of that process is to create
something called ketone bodies that
serve as alternate fuel for the brain
the brain can rely on glucose or ketone
bodies the more that you avoid the sugar
the more the body learns to rely on the
ketone bodies so fasting basically means
starving and it’s a really bad idea to
try to starve yourself unless you have
developed a little bit of keto
adaptation you if you gradually cut out
the carbs so that you increase your
body’s ability to use fat now you don’t
have these fluctuations in blood sugar
so if you start stretching out your
fasting periods you’re not gonna feel
horrible and everything that you do you
want to start thinking about having it
sustainable you want to create
lifestyles you want to create do things
that you can sustain and starvation is
not sustainable if you body relies on
carbohydrates if your blood sugar goes
up and down
and you try to do a fast if you try to
do intermittent fasting if you try to
avoid eating for a period of time you’re
gonna feel terrible can you do it yes
with a lot of willpower you can push
yourself through a period of time but
it’s not really a good idea because it’s
not sustainable you’re upsetting your
body you’re not creating health and
balance in your body so are they the
same thing
not exactly but sustained fasting leads
to ketogenesis or keto adaptation and
that’s just the more logical and
pleasant way to go about it because once
your keto adapted once you’ve learned to
rely on fat for energy you can go longer
and longer and longer and eventually
probably 18 to 24 hours is not a big
deal because your body knows how to
sustain its energy level through that be
